The backbone of our organization is strengthened by our network of volunteers, who dedicate their time to helping our city’s residents. Whether it is providing information sessions about crime prevention techniques, representing the OPS at community events, or singing songs to lift spirits or commemorate those who have fallen; our volunteers not only enrich the lives of area residents, but provide a valuable service to the OPS.

In July the OPS welcomed Jessica Jak as the new Volunteer Coordinator for the Service. It also saw the addition of 22 new Venturers, who are instrumental in helping out at OPS events city-wide throughout the year. The Venturers program has grown in support internally at the OPS, with more than 12 OPS members volunteering their time to help with the program.  They were joined by more than 20 students, both from area high schools and post-secondary institutions, who enjoyed short-term placements within the OPS and added great value to the sections they supported.

We also welcomed five new members to our volunteer family in 2018, who will help provide information for residents, do home inspection reports, and a multitude of other things that help to keep our city safe.
